I mean if the whole movie goes that deep into the dumb end, that'll actually make for a pretty funny flick.

Unfortunately, I do not have confidence in Disney's ability to screw up in the correct way.

I can only assume that every time the screen actor's guild came up in negotiations they were tempted to put it in all bold text

Super Mario Bros: The Morton Jankel Cut (VHS Extended Rough Cut 1.0)

Interview

In this cut, I was going for a more laid-back tone because the editing in the final film is very frantic—it doesn’t breathe and it doesn’t make sense a lot of times. I wanted to dismantle that a little bit and slow it down to what it was originally and make more sense out of it.


Okay, forget the Snyder Cut, I want to have an edible and watch this.

Holy shit.

The original holds up really well already, I'm definitely watching this next chance I get.

It does pretty much as promised. The 20 minutes is spread out over about a hundred added shots that just give a little bit of padding a lot of scenes needed. More establishing shots, and full versions of shots that had been pretty chopped up that just makes it a bit easier to follow. Specifically the devolution chair scene, meeting Bertha, and pretty much every scene with Toad get the most out of it. I was falling asleep by the end, but I don't think anything really changes the story at all.

Standouts:
Very disappointed they removed all references to 'Koopans' as the currency in Dinohattan from the release version.
There's a war crime committed by Fisher Stevens in the club scene, so watch out for that.

Yeah, I'd say the de-evolution chair scene and the Club Boom-Boom scene really benefit the most from it. The rest...well, it seems pretty clear the goal here is to include every scrap of footage on the work print, and that's a perfectly valid goal; historical preservation is an end in itself.

But man, there are a whole lot of shots that were cut for good reason -- people parking cars or stepping out of buildings, or repeating the same line they just said. (I always thought the movie's biggest weakness was that they didn't shout "Daisy!" "Luigi!" "DAISY!" "LUIGI!" nearly enough times.)

There's one bit that even has Mario just standing there for several seconds in the middle of a joke, after the setup and before the punchline, killing the timing dead (it's the bit where Luigi says "I know just what to do!", cut to bursting into the apartment and asking Mario for help -- except in this cut we just see Mario standing in the apartment for awhile before Luigi comes in). That sort of fascinates me -- like, why was it cut like that in the first place? Is it customary for a work print to just cut scenes earlier and later, with the expectation that it'll be cleaned up in a later edit? Were they leaving obvious cuts for whatever Disney suits were going to go over it and give notes? Or are the people who made the movie even more inept at filmmaking than I thought?

But there are a lot of spots that benefit from added continuity or just a little breathing room. And it was nice to see more of the creature work -- I love the Goombas and Yoshi; like pretty much all the design in this movie, it's totally wrong but really beautifully-designed.

It's always been clear from looking at the production design that they wanted to make Brazil but wound up with a movie that was subject to so much studio meddling that it was unrecognizable as the film they set out to make.

Or, to put it another way, they wanted to make Brazil and succeeded beyond their wildest expectations.

"What if we combined Babe and John Wick?"
"That's ridiculous. Who in the hell would even star in that?"
"Nicholas Cage."

This is being constructed entirely out of writer's room credit hacks isn't it.

I'm convinced Space Jam 2 is a backdoor corporate portfolio, created entirely out of the hope that some Saudi prince will see it with their kid and commission a similar self-insert epic for themselves.

They're scrambling to try and figure out the magic formula that made Space Jam work without realizing the inherent flaw in that plan.
